BBQ Spaghetti?

My mad dash to Tennessee was short one item, spaghetti.
I had always heard about it and wanted to try it while in Memphis, the the opportunity to try it never arose. So the other night I decided to give it a try. My wife thought I had lost my mind, but I talked her into trying it. Of course I had to promise to fix her something else if she did not like it, shock she was certain she would not. Well I must say she was wrong, it was a huge hit. The sauce was a deep red savory sensation that I used the left over pork butt that I smoked last weekend. I served it over some al dente spaghetti noodles , with a side salad. This is a recipe that will be used again and I hope y’all enjoy it.

2 lbs Spaghetti noodles cooked al dente
1/2 stick Butter

  1. Sounds good, the trick being, getting your mind past what traditionally passes for spaghetti. All the same components, meat, red sauce, and pasta, just with an awesome southern flair.
